NEWPORT NEWS, Va. (AP) -- Lawyers for Michael Vick have asked a
federal bankruptcy judge to appoint a mediator to help settle his
financial obligations with creditors.

At a hearing Friday in Newport News, Virginia, lawyer Paul
Campsen indicated that court-ordered mediation would make sense and
save money. Judge Frank J. Santoro told a representative of several
creditors to make sure mediation would be acceptable to them before
he appoints a mediator.

Vick's lawyers have said they are still using accountants to
track down his assets and liabilities. Vick, once the highest-paid player in the NFL for the Atlanta Falcons, is serving a 23-month federal prison sentence after his conviction on dogfighting charges last summer.
